Can you Eq live vocals?
To get the best results when equalizing live vocals, you must do six fundamental things: Start with flat EQs – Reset the EQ on the mixing console. Cut out the low-end rumble – Use the high-pass filter. Remove problematic (“hot”) frequencies – Add warmth to the sound.
Why are my recorded vocals so quiet?
There are several reasons to explain the lower volume of your recording, the most important factors are: the microphone, the interface(if you use one), the editing and what you want to record (loud or soft vocals).
Why do my vocals sound amatuer?
Another reason you may hear vocals sticking out so much is if they were recorded over a ‘beat’ or a pre-made composition. It’s hard to make room for/blend a vocal into an instrumental track that’s already been produced since you have a lot less control over individual instruments.

Are my vocals too loud in mix?
If you find that the vocals suddenly go from sounding too low in the mix to too loud, then you need to apply more dynamic processing. Vocals with wildly uncontrolled dynamics are a hallmark sign of an amateur mix engineer.
Should Kick be louder than snare?
The snare is the foundation of the backbeat, and typically one of the loudest elements in the mix. Next, bring the kick fader up until it sounds almost as loud as the snare. It should be loud enough that the low frequencies are rich and powerful, but not so loud that it masks the bottom-end of the snare drum.
How loud should a mix be before mastering?
I recommend mixing at -23 dB LUFS, or having your peaks be between -18dB and -3dB. This will allow the mastering engineer the opportunity to process your song, without having to resort to turning it down.
Why are my vocals so quiet in Garageband?
There is one reason for why your Garageband songs are so quiet, and it has to do with a setting in Garageband’s ‘Preferences,’ within the ‘Advanced’ tab. Your songs are so quiet because you have the “Auto-Normalize” function turned on in Garageband.
How do you record vocals without distortion loud?

How loud should you record vocals?
You should record vocals at an average of -18dB for 24-bit resolution. The loudest parts of the recording should peak at -10dB and be lowest at -24dB. This is to keep an even balance on the level of the vocals without distortion.
